Canicross welcomes any breed or cross breed of dog.
There is usually a two-dog maximum for any one runner. Competition rules state that dogs should be over the age of 12 months for canicross and over 18 months for bikejor/scootering, and we strongly recommend that these guidelines are adhered to during all training runs and events.
All dogs must be aged 18 months or older to compete in distances of over 10 miles. If in any doubt, you are advised to seek veterinary advice before undertaking strenuous distances with a young dog. Breed specifics should be acknowledged and owners are responsible for their dog’s welfare.
Bitches in season are not excluded from taking part; however, it is the owner’s responsibility to ensure that adequate precautions are taken and that they acknowledge full liability.
Any fouling must be cleared away and disposed of responsibly.
